MARK S. KING is an award winning columnist, author, blogger and AIDS advocate who has been involved in gay causes since the early 1980’s. After graduating the University of Houston, King pursued an acting career in Los Angeles and appeared in dozens of television commercials hawking fast food and soft drinks. During this time he also opened Telerotic, which became one of the largest gay telephone fantasy services in the country. King sold the company in 1986 as AIDS was beginning its devastation of the gay community. It is this period of time that King brings back to life in his memoir, A Place Like This. King has appeared as a regular spokesperson on ABC News, 48 Hours, CNN News and in The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. His award-winning writing has been featured in The Advocate, Newsweek, The Washington Blade, and on TheBody.com web site. King has been honored for his writing numerous times, including the 2007-2008 National Lesbian and Gay Journalist Association’s award for best opinion piece of the year, for his essay “Once, When We Were Heroes,” about the early days of the AIDS epidemic. Mark’s video blog, “My Fabulous Disease,” is one of the most popular ongoing features of the TheBody.com, with viewers from around the world.
